Opportunity: High use of excipients with multifunctional properties is witnessed as an emerging trend among key players.

Multifunctional excipients are a class of excipients that include pre-processed and co-processed excipients that provide added functionalities to the formulation. For example, Silicified Micro-Crystalline Cellulose is a processed combination of MCC and colloidal silicon dioxide. These functionalities include flowability, compressibility, particle size distribution, shape, and porosity. The term multifunctional excipient is also extended to products that serve multiple roles in the formulation of dietary supplement and functional food & beverage line of products; for example, Ludipress is a co-processed product containing lactose, Kollidon, and Kollidon-CL, which serves the role of DC diluent with binder and disintegrant properties.

The demand for excipients with improved functionalities in the nutraceutical industry remains high, while also minimizing the drawbacks of incorporated excipients. According to the International Pharmaceutical Excipient Council (IPEC), a co-processed excipient is “a combination of two or more compendial or non-compendial excipients designed to physically modify their properties in a manner not achievable by simple physical mixing, and without significant chemical change.”

Challenge: Consumer skepticism associated with nutraceutical products due to rural and semi-urban consumer perception of dietary supplements as pharmaceutical drugs and their false claims.

The majority of the population is skeptical about the consumption of nutraceutical products, particularly the dietary supplement products. In addition, the increase in unawareness among rural and semi-urban consumers about dietary supplements and the lack of education regarding the same discourages key players from investing. This population contributes to a major share of the non-dietary supplement consuming population in the developing and non-developing countries. In addition, consumers perceive dietary supplements as medical drugs and are apprehensive about incorporating the same in their daily dietary lifestyles. Due to these factors, a number of manufacturers are focusing on developing different formulations of supplements, such as gummies, soft chews, and others, on mitigating the fear of consuming tablets and capsules as nutraceuticals. However, these formulations are still in the early stage of entering the global market. In contrast, tablets and capsules in the nutraceutical market already have a majority share, which hinders the growth of this market.

The binders segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the nutraceutical excipients market in 2020, by functionality.

Based on functionality, binders accounted for the largest market share in 2019, followed by the fillers & diluents functionality segment. Binder is increasingly being used by dietary supplement manufacturers since these excipients are formulated to act as an adhesive to “bind together” powders, granules, and other dry ingredients to impart the required mechanical strength. Binders can also help in adding volume to low-active dose tablets, resulting in producing effective tablets with appropriate actives by holding the ingredients together. In addition, some binders also act as fillers and diluents in an array of application products, namely magnesium stearate, which is used widely as food and supplement additive. Due to factors such as versatility and vital importance in gaining product efficiency, binders are gaining traction and are witnessing a rise in consumption as an excipient in the nutraceutical industry.
